I was surprised how much I liked this one. I’m generally not a huge fan of viennas, but this one as nicely bold and assertive. Nice mix of caramel malt and and a dryish, hoppy finish. Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2008
Bottle courtesy of dcachur. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of dry malt, oranges. Tastes dry and grassy with a doughy finish. Cybercat (6334) - Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a decent white head. Aroma is malty with an undertone of apple. Flavor is crisp, malty and a little fruity, not special but palatable. Texture has average fizz and viscosity. OK, but definitely drinkable. Good with dinner. TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Bottle. Soft amber with a tall, fizzy white head. Aroma is toasted malts, grassy hops, straw, and grains. Taste is toasted malt, light lemon, yeast notes, grassy hops, straw and biscuit. Body is light-medium with a moderate, fizzy carbonation. Ends with more toasted malt, sweet malt, hint of caramel, grassy hops, and straw. Not too bad. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle from dkachur. Thanks man! Aroma is nice and malty with some moderated fruitiness and some caramel, light floral hops too. Pours a hazy amber/gold tone with a thin head. Flavor of moderately sweet caramel malts, light fruitiness, and crisp floral hops in the finish. Light and crisp with pretty high carbonation.

Bottle from giant sterling. Pours orange with a half an inch of white foam. A bit citrusy on the nose. Pretty smooth on the tongue with a slight hint of malt sweetness on the finish. It’s not lager but it could be worse. ganache (6088) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle. Nose is sweet and floral, juicy citrus -- really nice effect from noble hops -- and a lightly grainy toasty malt character. Pours orange-golden with strong carbonation and a soapy beige head. Oily light body, plenty of malt and juicy citrus juice, light toasting and crisp, dried out, very low bitterness, clean and lightly floral. Reminds of some recent improvements to authentic German Pilsner, especially in the hop department, but the malt is thin and a bit weak, bit tired despite the mild refreshemnt. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Bottle at Cafe Deluxe Bethesda. Clear amber with slight head. Nose of malts, roasty, some suds. Taste malty, roasty, caramel. Smooth finish. nearbeer (5662) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2009
12 oz. Clear deep topaz with a sticky, lasting head. Aromas of spicy flower and sweet grain. Initial flavor of butterscotch dries slowly into an almost crisp finish that has notes of toasted nuts and spicy-sweet grain. Near-medium body is smooth and finishes fairly dry. Aurelius (5652) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Fair enough. Cereal, slightly doughy eurolager aroma with some very light fruit. Nicely bittered, malty, pizza beer. Medium body. Couldn’t see the color, I was drinking it from the bottle. Slight appearance ding for the twistoff cap. There were a couple of off notes in the finish - kind of dubbel-y - just a twinge of straw and must, but only occasionally noticable. New Leaf Market.
